Palliative Gastrectomy: 1

A D V E R T I S E M E N T

   
 

A 46-year-old man presented with a 6-month history of epigastric burning. After an upper GI series reportedly read as normal, the patient was treated for h. pylori. Due to increasing symptoms and a recent history of early satiety, the patient underwent esophagogastroscopy. A large antral mass was seen and biopsy showed an invasive, poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma.
